Back in August 2021 Ric Flair brought his most recent WWE run to an end. The WWE Hall of Famer asked to leave the company following a lacklustre storyline featuring his daughter Charlotte Flair and Lacey Evans. The angle was criticised by fans online and came to an early conclusion when Evans revealed that she was pregnant and would be taking time off.
While Flair left WWE on good terms initially, he was quickly surrounded by controversy following an episode of Dark Side of the Ring looking at the ‘Plane ride from hell.’ The show featured a number of allegations about Flair on the infamous flight in 2002. As a result he was removed from WWE’s opening TV package and his merchandise was also pulled from the company’s online store.
Flair later described being removed from the package as the “most hurtful moment of his life,” before thanking Vince McMahon for adding him back in July 2022.
Ric Flair Would “Love” To Be Part Of WWE
Speaking on a recent episode of his podcast, To Be The Man, the Nature Boy admitted that he would love to be involved with the company, although he’s unsure whether that will happen. Flair added that a new documentary from WWE about his life and career will be released around Thanksgiving.
“I don’t know what I would do. I’d love to be a part of the company and do stuff with them, but I don’t know.
“It’s funny, they’re doing this huge documentary on me now that’ll air Thanksgiving week or the week before Christmas. I think they’re leaning towards Thanksgiving. Some names going around, but I think it’s called Finding Flair.
“This will be better than my 30 For 30 on ESPN, because I made them promise me that whatever I said they wouldn’t edit. I’m not gonna do something that’s gonna be edited again.”
Flair went on to explain that for the documentary he spoke about the good and bad in his life, answering questions as truthfully as he could.
“It’s been passionate and man, I expressed everything that was good or bad in my life. I discussed my personal life, my personal problems, family problems, wrestling problems, issues with people that I’ve had. I just answered questions, and I answered them as truthfully as I could.”
Since Ric Flair left WWE, Vince McMahon has also moved on from his position as Chairman, being replaced by Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan. Interestingly, Flair has been incredibly critical of Khan in the not-so-recent past.
